Re: My 05 is all Locked Up

Please know I appreciate the help you all have tried to give, but I have good news to report. I have been working on this issue all morning and have finally found the problem. It appears that in AZgl1800 earlier post, he touched on the fact that the Kill Switch may be to blame. Well, that is exactly...

Re: My 05 is all Locked Up

Yes, thanks for the help. I will try to be more precise in what happened and what the current symptoms are. I was in reverse and moving backwards on level ground while making a slight turn to the right when after about moving 6 feet,the engine shut off and the reverse light on the dash went off. I t...

Re: My 05 is all Locked Up

Thanks for your suggestions. I have tried just about everything including the things you suggest and no luck. I have checked all the fuses and etc with all showing good. Luckily, this happened at home so I am good there. May have to get it towed to the shop to figure this one out?

My 05 is all Locked Up

I need some help on this one folks. I was backing up in reverse when all of a sudden the motor stopped instantly and now I can't get it out of gear ? Won't go back into neutral so I can push it or to try to restart it. Has anyone had this experience before? Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Battery Opinion

Over the years I have used multiple brand batteries including the factory batteries. With that being said, they all were ok but, in my personal experience, I found that the Yuasa batteries did not last very long. I then stumbled upon the Duracell battery and I have never looked back . Best battery o...

When you press the "TALK" lever on the left handlebar, do you see "TX" appear on your dash screen?

Re: J&m digital player plugins? 1800

Thanks for the input, I think I'll pass on this upgrade. I purchased a longer cord so I can keep my phone in my tank storage pouch, works fine. What I think I would really like is a satellite radio setup. There is a lot of nothing from Vegas to anyplace else and radio reception is spotty at best. G...

Re: J&m digital player plugins? 1800

I've been considering purchasing one of the J&M units and installing it. Based on the comments I'm reading from you all, should I even bother with one? I don't want to have to hassle with pulling fuses. My MP3 adapter on my phone works fine.. Well, all I can say is that after I purchased the J&M un...

Re: J&m digital player plugins? 1800

All you have to do is pull the audio fuse and re-install. That will reset the audio system.

Re: Vibrating mirrows

Well, you are about half way thru the tire life, and I personally never had any luck with Dunlop tires, so you could bite the bullet and get a new set of tires or at least the rear and I would throw out the wheel weights and use Dyna Beads for balancing. If that doesn't do the trick, I will stand by...

Re: Vibrating mirrows

Well, there are a lot of variables here. How many miles on you're bike, What brand tires, how are they balanced, If all the obvious is ruled out, and it is getting up into the higher mileage range, my guess would be U-joint on the drive shaft. Just my .02

Mp3 Player Problems

My factory CD player finally crashed after 7 years so I opted to replace it with the J&M Digital player. Install was pretty much a no brainer, but loading the thumb drive and getting it to display "CD2" is another story. No matter how many songs I load in each CD position, I can not get CD2 to displ...

Re: How many of us are retired?

Retired in 2005 at 52 years old. Purchased my 3rd and most likely last goldwing in 2010 which is a 2005 model year. I have been enjoying goldwings since my first new purchase in 1985.

Re: Right Turn Only

That's a good question. I am not sure that every single time this issue has happened I was using my turn signal. I do know that I always try to use my signals when I ride.
